The French are coming...as in our favorite French metal extremists!
French metal act Gojira, easily one of the most buzzed about and beloved extreme bands of the past five years, have revealed L'Enfant Sauvage as the title of their Roadrunner Records debut. The title translates to "The Wild Child." The album, which features 11 tracks of mind-bending metal, is scheduled to land at retail on June 26.
That makes us psyched for the summer.
"When you become a musician, you don't have a boss telling you what to do so you have to be very responsible," singer/guitarist/songwriter Joe Duplantier said, shedding a little light on the title and its meaning. "With freedom comes responsibility so I'm asking myself, 'What is freedom? What does it mean to me?' L'Enfant Sauvage reflects on that. There's no answer though. There's just life and questions."
A special collector's package of L'Enfant Sauvage will feature two bonus tracks and a double-colored vinyl version of the record, along with an exclusive t-shirt.
